I find myself using the word "gutted" a lot these days.....  *LOL*

But "gutted" has to be pronounced with a northern accent!

Exactly.....almost like "gooted"....or maybe "gut-ed".  Regional differences, ya know....but VERY adamant, no matter how it's declared!  *LOL*

(I say this as a Southern woman with NO linguistic education, just a love of Brit accents!!)

Two words I learned from UK Masterchef - The Professionals:

gutted  =  very sad

chuffed = very happy

At work, I used to park next to a MiniCooper with the license plate CHUFFD. Took a while to figure out what it meant.

Thank you. I can't remember his name yet but I really like him. One of the things I love about GBBO is that they don't make a big deal out of stuff like that. I remember one season one of the women had something with her hand (I forget what because they thankfully avoid doing the sob story edit I see in pretty much every American reality completion, no matter if it's baking, cooking, building something, or doing some survival challenges) and I don't even remember them mentioning it, it just was, and she carried on like all the others, just like Marc does.  

I agree. I call it "inspiration porn". It's insulting, in my view. A person with a disability does not exist to "inspire". They're living their lives, just like anyone. 

Mak's letter was pure class. I'm still mad about him being eliminated over Rowan. That was wrong. Why have a technical challenge if it's meaningless?

Or Matt/Noel could carry around a bottle of hand sanitizer and anyone who gets a handshake also gets a squirt of that.

Marc has an artificial leg.  Lost his leg in 2016 in a motorcycle accident.  We've seen it but they haven't mentioned it.  He's fourth from the left in this picture.

Thank you. I never even noticed.

That's because on British shows they care about the baking.  It's not a sob-story competition like we have here in the States.

I'm relieved to learn I'm not the only one Dave makes uneasy.

Sura is obviously the show's attempt to recreate the magic that was (and is) Nadiya.

Sura doesn't seem similar to Nadiya in personality or demeanor at all to me.

I think Sura is great and Dave is not scary.

On a rewatch last night we noticed something funny.  We always have closed captioning on watching Netflix.  When Lottie finally gets the cardboard out of the center of her Viking Vessel, she says "oh fuck" and the captioning included it.  They do curse and it isn't bleeped, but I never noticed it in the captioning!

Netflix doesn't care about swearing, even in the captioning.  We always have the captioning on, and we watch a lot of movies on Netflix.  LOL.

I like Matt.  He seems like he has a quick wit.  I like how he makes Paul laugh.

My favorite moment was Noel telling Sura to hang back.  She has a great laugh!  The showstopper wasn’t interesting to me, and I am tired of them cutting back the time.  I must admit that I loved the exchanges between Paul and Rowan.  “Did you practice your bakes?”  “Yes.”  “Did you do it to time?” “No” with a smile.

Not everything that is stocked in one country is necessarily readily available in another.  (And you'd have to shoot me before I'd eat Hershey's chocolate, and most Brits feel the same.)

I find this fascinating...not even melted underneath a gooey campfire-toasted marshmallow sandwiched between two graham crackers?  Or dipped in peanut butter? 🙂

Noel however, I want to fly to England, track him down and be his best friend forever. 

Same.  He has a twinkle in his eyes that I adore.

I also love "arsed" and "gobsmacked."  

Peter reminds me of a young Prince William.  And while I was bummed to see Mak go over Rowan, I am also curious to see what Rowan can accomplish if he follows directions - although he doesn't seem too concerned when he's being criticized for not listening.  At some point if he keeps trying to do too much he's going to have to be cut.  His magnificent ideas are only going to work if he can produce them in time!

Sorry no - Hershey's chocolate still tastes like sick to me.

(For some reason I can't add a link, but apparently I'm not the only one and there is a scientific cause for it related to butyric acid.)

Most American chocolate, and Hershey's in particular, contains butyric acid to give chocolate a longer shelf life and so it can be safely transported over long distances. (They talked about that in the most recent series of QI)

European chocolate > British chocolate > American chocolate

This is not a great take. And the compliments don't improve it. It's really very diminishing to assume or imply that someone's presence is stunt-casting, and you're contributing to an environment in which people have to deal with that all the time. Sura is obviously competent to be there. Why not assume she was simply included on that basis, as presumably the rest of them were.
